In celebration of the newly-renovated Conrad Dublin, its sister property – Conrad Hong Kong – held an Irish Teeling Whiskey-inspired tasting and cheese pairing experience last week, giving the Far East attendees a taste of some of the best of the west.
The night brought guests an exclusive opportunity to experience Dublin fare first-hand, courtesy of traditional Irish bites and beverages offered at Conrad Dublin that were on offer at the Hong Kong bash.
Referring to the recently announced availability of direct flights between Dublin and Hong Kong scheduled to begin later this year, Thomas Hoeborn, general manager of Conrad Hong Kong, said: “With the highly-anticipated new route between the two cities, we are delighted to introduce Conrad Dublin and be one of the first few to bring the city closer to our guests by showcasing the genuine taste of Irish presented by our seasoned culinary team.”
The night featured the likes of Irish beer cheese soup, black pudding scotch eggs, and whiskey smoked salmon lollipops.
Along with the canapes, several ‘live stations’ and a chef’s showcase trolley were also available at the venue, with options including Irish farm cheese, salmon, beef and oysters.
Tim Loughman, vice president, luxury and lifestyle brands, Hilton said: “We are thrilled to have two properties collaborate and inspire attendees to explore two of our iconic destinations, Dublin and Hong Kong.
“Conrad Hotels & Resorts prioritises introducing travellers to local cultures and we are so pleased that we were able to highlight the connectivity and service that is synonymous with the Conrad brand.”
